A Noisy Blast - A Son Of Light

Band:MAT3R DOLOROSA
Album:A Noisy Blast - A Son Of Light
Label:JARRING EFFECTS
Format:CD
Genre:Dance/Electronica

When you ask Mat3r Dolorosa to describe his album, in one sentence would be “concise and enigmatic” which falls to “In a Noisy Blast is born a road to Light” It seems like sibylline however everything is there. In his assumed but humble reference as Milton and his Lost’s Paradise first, he evokes the long way as much as the origin, the Creation. Encounters of journeys and figures as like: the one of Human and his chaotic achievement, or Lucifer, Light angel dismissed to the abyss. In the end, who is the real Son of light?

As for “Noisy Blast”, it’s a creative blast of air as much as an elimination. Understanding is deconstructing, erasing the subterfuges, the misleading, the superfluous, the parasites to reach the truth. This strong blast of air is also a research, a comprehension quest, a meaning. Finding his way through the darkness, and understanding his own long way to connect the separate elements is how he reaches for a global vision. The desired thematic by the artist as architect of civil life and the design (of the music as the cover) take on his full meaning.
